“I doubt the [NCAA] Council takes any action other than bringing it up in concept form,” said Shane Lyons, the current head of the council, which has main legislative responsibility over Division I sports. The introduction of transfer windows later this summer is more plausible, as the powerful Transformation Committee analyzes NCAA deregulation as a whole.
“The deregulation of transfers combined with the evolution of [name, image, and likeness] is causing a lot of stress in the system,” a person close to the committee said. “Furthermore, the NCAA’s failure to enforce inducements and tampering [is a problem]. This has been a topic of discussion for a long time.”
